Adventures of a Stolen iPhone - A New Disney Tale


I took a little break from work this evening and noticed this shared post on my wall from my friend, Becky Caroll: 


I clicked to find this album, which was created by a girl named Katy McCaffrey.  I don't know Katy, but I like her style.  This album is called "Stolen iPhone Adventures".
In the comments fields, Katy gives permission for people to share this, so I thought I'd bring it out of Facebook.
 
According to her posts, her iPhone went missing aboard the Disney Wonder when she was on a cruise.  Recently, the phone began updating iCloud, with photos taken by the the guy who (apparently) stole her phone.  His name is Nelson.  He is a cast/crew member on the Disney Wonder.  Here he is in uniform:


Evidently, here is his girlfriend, who works at the Spa.  She is in many photos.

Here's a photo taken with the partying crew, including the Captain!

There are even photos from ports of call...
And of Nelson, at sunset. Awww.

So the question is, what is Disney going to do about this pesky little issue?  As of today, this album has been liked by over 7,000 users and it won't be long before major media gets a whiff.

I wrote a blog post, and Katy took the following action.


Good luck, Katy!  This reminds me of the time my colleague lost her phone and we tracked it to the cab driver's apartment building, using the "Find my Phone" application.  He returned the phone the next day - fortunately, he was an honest guy.  Yet another example of how tech can tell on us.
